We at WHACKollective are unceasingly excited by the limitless possibilities offered by contemporary percussion music. Formed in Melbourne in early 2021, our ensemble was drawn together by a shared enthusiasm for music that is theatrical, unusual, and visually appealing. Our mission is, therefore, twofold: to present to our audiences music that is not only sonically captivating, but also thrilling to behold.

WHACKollective is a percussion quartet that began at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, with the aim of making unique and unconventional contemporary percussion works accessible and relatable to broader audiences. The ensemble aims to create shared musical experiences, that facilitate meaningful connection between audience, performer, composer, and music.
